About this book

Libby asserts there are viable strategies available to environmental, food safety, animal rights, gun control, and other organisations that seek to challenge business interests in the political arena. Drawing upon previously classified files, this book also draws from interviews with both activists and the industry representatives they oppose. With his balanced analysis, Libby goes beyond the polemical nature of much work on this subject, offering a new avenue for research in the social sciences and a useful tool for interest groups.

Media reviews
A very usable and balanced book with great adaptability to any course dealing with organized interest politics. Libby argues well that expressive interests can and do check and politically trouble wealthier economic interests. This analysis effectively presents a side of interest politics that too many ignore too often.
